The program has begun simultaneously in every county in the United States and is term ed "The Forward Look for the Polio Patient." First step in the still limited program is an historic survey to de-ermine the precise number and the location and condition of every person wtio has ever had polio. When the survey is completed it will be the first master list of victims of any disease. The Fayette County Chapter will complete the survey and forward it to headquarters of tin- National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis by September 10. According to Chairman Hofmeyer this survey is the first step in a long-term program tu bring Die most complete possible rehabilitation for these past and present polio victims, with the new techniques developed by medical science in recent years. With Iowa polio incidence only 17 as of July 29, there is a possibility that money, personnel and facilities will be adequate to begin the extensive work necessary to put many past polio patients into the most complete participation in daily life, said Hofmeyer. None of the work except for the patients receiving assistance from the March of Dimes now, will begin until the first step of the new program is completed. The survey is necessary to determine the needs in both funds and facilities. The Fayette County Chapter is busy now working on the lists which are available from many sources. However, because so many polio patients from past years have moved, both into and out of Fayette County, all pust polio patients have been requested to report to the Chapter by calling Chairman Hofmeyer or by sending the name, address and telephone number to Box 415, Fayette, Iowa. That applies for all patients, of either paralytic or non-paralytic polio, said Hofmeyer.
